It’s great to have you with us in Portland and we hope that you enjoy your stay whatever the reason for your visit. To make sure you get the most out of your trip, we’ve put together this little Survival Guide with all the essentials you might need to know.

From getting around town to getting those creases out of your dinner shirt, it’s all here, laid out nice and easy for your scrolling pleasure. We want you to have the best stay possible, so if you need anything day or night, just dial 0 on the phone next to your bed.

Us and our neighborhood

The Hoxton, Portland is our second home in North America and our first on the West Coast. Built in 1907, the building has had a storied past. Home to the Hotel Philip where it housed men-only during WW2. It became The Grove Hotel in 1946. In addition to a hotel, The Grove was also home to many small businesses including Burnside Groceries and Meats and a tailor shop.

Located right next to the Chinatown Gate in Old Town, we like to think our neighborhood has got a little bit of everything… and then some! During the day you can explore the beautiful Chinese Gardens, shop at locally owned streetwear shops, and pop into a neighborhood pub. After watching the sun go down from the Tope rooftop you can head to one of the many bars in the neighborhood to hit the dance floor.

The Little Breakfast

We do believe in fairies, we do, we do. The breakfast fairies, that is. They deliver The Little Breakfast Bag to each and every room. Find it on the desk, fill in the blanks, pop it on the hook outside your room, go to sleep and wake to find it stocked with fresh fruit juice, a piece of fruit and a Better Bar – made right here in Portland – come morning. Bags are just $4 each.

If you need something a bit more substantial, we’ve got some tasty recommendations up our sleeve, just ask the Reception team.

Tiny Hox for Survival Guide

Got little’uns in tow?

Tiny Hox has you covered. Whether you’re joining us with infants, toddlers or kids that are slightly older, we’ve put together all the essentials to see you through. All of our rooms fit cribs. If you need one free of charge, just dial 0 and we’ll bring it up.

For little’uns aged 0-2 years, all Tiny Hox stays come with a welcome tote, containing our Smallable x Hox coloring book and pencils, as well as the following by request: free Little’uns Breakfast Bag, family-approved neighborhood map, kid-friendly menus in our lobby restaurants, bottle warmers, diaper pails, Coterie diapers and wipes (needed in a pinch), freezer space for milk and food, bath essentials (anti-slip shower mat, baby bath, baby soap and lotion), and board games curated by Smallable.

Rip-off-free fridge

No nasty bills on check-out here, we give you a rip-off free mini-fridge stocked with fresh milk for morning coffee or tea and thirst quenching water.

What’s more, Pop Up Grocer curated a tasty assortment of goods in our Hox Shop. Take a peek at what’s available, and head to the reception desk to shop!

Quick Tips

We’re a stone’s throw from many of the city’s public transit hubs — from the MAX to the different bus lines.

The team at the Reception are happy to point you in the right direction.

In PDX, you’ve gotta call a cab to get a cab — you ain’t gonna be able to hail one down on the street. You can dial a Radio Cab from your room or ask the Reception to help you out. Lyft and Uber are both widely used here, too.

There are Hox Bikes available for you to use for free during your stay. Just ask at the Reception and they’ll give you the lowdown. There are also BikeTown bikes available across the city — they’re super easy to use and you can’t beat the convenience of bopping around town on wheels.

It goes without saying, WiFi is free for all guests at The Hox. And if you’d like to make a good ole fashioned landline call, your first hour is free per day to pretty much anywhere except the moon.

Just call the front desk (0) and we’ll bring an ice bucket right up.

Just email your document to hello.portland@thehox.com and we’ll take care of the rest.

Wanna sweat? Guests of The Hox have the hook up at Knot Springs, with 15% off all classes. We also recommend 24 Hour Fitness or Portland City Boxing – all are within walking distance. Prefer an outdoor run? Our friends at Wy’East put 3 routes together, starting and ending at The Hox.

Hit up the reception desk if you have any questions!

Get out of bed you sleepy head

Planning a party?

The Apartment on the ground floor is a Meeting and Event space like no other. Each room is set up like a home away from home, based around a central Pantry Kitchen filled with treats to help yourself to. By day it can host meetings of all sizes and by night, it’s a perfect venue for everything from intimate private dining events to large parties.

Whatever the occasion, we’ll have the perfect space. Just ask Reception for more details on how to book them or email book.portland@thehox.com.

The Hoxton comes to each of our neighborhoods with an open door and an open mind. With everything you need, and nothing you don’t, we’re inspired by the diversity and originality of the streets and scenes that surround us.
